This is new information. Where are you getting this news from? And if they are "combined" where will the actual law school be located? Camden? Newark? New Brunswick? Barnegat lighthouse? (oh God please let the last one happen, I would love to go to school on the beach).
I haven't read anything about Camden and Newark merging, and considering how diligent I've been on Rutgers' current events I'm inclined to believe it's totally false.
There's a mention of it here:http://crab.rutgers.edu/~johnwall/lawletter.pdf
3rd paragraph from the bottom:
"Rutgers University could have the finest public law school in the Northeast, if we maintain our ties to the University. As President McCormick knows, long before the University of Medicine and Dentistry Advisory Committee began its work, the Schools of Law in Camden and Newark were actively pursuing avenues of cooperation with the aim of ultimately creating “Rutgers Law”
, which all agree would have a presence in New Brunswick
. That process is on- going – indeed, we held a faculty meeting just last Monday to discuss the next steps – and it holds the promise of raising the national stature of legal education and scholarship at Rutgers to unprecedented heights. Accepting the Committee’s merger recommendation would not simply undo all of the progress that we have made in the service of Rutgers on this front, it would preempt this extraordinary opportunity for the University. Rutgers could have an elite public law school, placing it in league with the finest state research universities, all of which have first-class law schools. But this can only be realized if Rutgers Law combines the strengths of the law schools in both Camden and Newark."
